Alyson Prokop, Operations Manager

My name is Alyson and I am the Operations Manager for Hamilton Victory Gardens. I am a botanist and plant pathologist by training, with over 15 years in the agriculture and education industries. My strengths are creating organizational framework, leadership development, graphic design, program and outreach coordination, policy writing and risk assessment. And of course, all this is done with a passion for gardening. I recently worked at Royal Botanical Gardens where I was coordinating their children's gardening programs / community plots and working as a outdoor education instructor. I invite you to introduce yourself the next time we are in the garden, and don't be shy - I love to chat and am often seen with a cup of tea in my hand. Happy Gardening!

“Hi, I’m Elizabeth! I am a 5th year student at McMaster University studying Environmental Science. I chose to work for HVG because I wanted to gain experience in the environmental field and contribute to an organization that helps people access fresh produce. I’m excited to work in this position because of its connection with sustainability and its contribution to the reduction of climate change causing greenhouse gases.”
